<a target="_blank" href="https://www.adagio.com/green/gyokuro.html" title="Gyokuro">Gyokuro</a>, a shade grown steamed green tea, is among the finest of Japanese teas. While the young leaves of the spring season develop, the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.adagio.com/green/gyokuro.html" title="Gyokuro">Gyokuro</a> plants are shaded from sun for several weeks. This slows the growth allowing, tea leaves more time to develop depth and flavor. The sun-deprived leaves are higher in chlorophyll, which explains their vivid green color. They're also higher in amino acids, most notably L-theanine, which accounts for the perfectly smooth, rich and soft flavor. Our fine <a target="_blank" href="https://www.adagio.com/green/gyokuro.html" title="Gyokuro">Gyokuro</a> green tea produces a deeply sweet aroma of freshly buttered greens and seaweed, with no grassiness or harshness. Think of tender new grass just sprouting in the spring. Soft on the palate with a balanced, delicate finish. Energizing and soothing cup of tea. Use lower water temperature and enjoy multiple infusions to get the most from this tea. Product of Japan. Steep at 165°F for 2 minutes
